Carolling at Christmas

To spread some Christmas cheer, members of Thanet Big Sing Choir and East Kent Mencap recently performed a carol service for shoppers at Westwood Cross. Together, the group performed classics such as ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘Deck the Halls’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’.

Crowd go bonkers for Variety Show

This month, our Swale drama group re-imagined ‘Alice in Wonderland’ for their annual performance. Titled ‘Bonkers’, the show blurred the lines between fantasy and reality as the audience were transported on a journey through Wonderland.
On Thursday 30th November, our Thanet drama group took centre stage for their annual Christmas Variety Show. The all singing, all dancing extravaganza was put together by the group during their weekly drama sessions at Margate resource centre. The drama group, who all have a learning disability, have been preparing for the show all year long.
